I think you have to be of a certain age!!  I was only 10 in 1978 when I started going, but you still have to learn your history on and off the pitch.  My history teacher was quite impressed when I chose to do a project on the club!!
 

saw the above at Marseille in 1999 with a Second World War gas mask when the cs gas canisters were raining in from the military!!

Was walking down Fulham Broadway in 1980 when a mate who was more clued up than me pointed him out as the new top boy.

That Marseille game they gave us a V Shape open terrace in the corner. Thought we made a lot of noise seeing as there was no roof. It went off down the front with OB which made the Standard the next day.

Got a coach back to Nice which took forever. Was talking on the way back with a Wolves fan who went out there looking for a bit of aggro because he got battered out there the previous year in the World Cup, which didn’t make a lot of sense

I missed about 10 mins of first half and into the second as I couldn’t see and struggled to breathe as one of the CS canisters landed near by. 
 

whilst on the way home on the plane the CS gas incident came up with the stewardesses as people were still asking for water.
They reported it to the pilot as the poisons in the gas would effect the cabin and it would need to be fumigated and taken out of service!!

Message back to Gatwick was obviously wrong as we were met by armed police coming down the gangway of the plane thinking there was trouble. 
 

We explained what had happened and we got off the plane. Forgot to mention that if you got the official buses to the ground you were put into an abattoir 2 1/2 hours before the game next to the ground!!

Good thing was there were English plain clothes police there observing but had no jurisdiction. Not the best trip

We are for ever grateful (massive understatement) to Clive for scoring this goal v Bolton away in May 1983.:drinks:

Happy Birthday to Clive Walker, who is 63 years young today.:drinks:

DOB confirmed by Clive as being 25/6, not in 26/5 as CFC & Wiki have. Ref:

What year was the and Leicester escort picture? 84/85 the train I was on broke through escort as they wanted to hold us on dual carriageway as they needed to open more terrace pens. A lot of us had seat tickets above and to the side and didn’t want to wait. The messages over the radio were funny, as the old bill were describing what was happening!
